PGO T-Rex 110

The PGO T-Rex 110 is spacious enough for bigger riders and more stable than the previous scooter generation.

There is adequate room for your feet and and enough space to to take the driving style that you prefer.

It is a bit slow at pull away and you might find it hard to get away from other commuters when starting from a stand still.Speed picks up nicely up to mid range and then it goes a bit slower until it reaches top end.

The T-Rex is stable enough to drive with one hand at top end, but if the road is slightly bumpy you better use both. The rear end is slightly loose and likes to hop on uneven surfaces.

The instrument has the usual warning lights, speedo, rev counter, fuel gauge and a spiffy digital clock.

The T-Rex has the usual storage space under the seat and a hook for your groceries.
At the front of the T-Rex is a pair of clear covered headlights and on clear indicators on the edge of the front panel.

PGO scooters are distributed in South Africa by Kawasaki motorcycles.

Vespa Piaggio ET4

The Piaggio ET4 has a 125cc four stroke single cylinder, Fan cooled LEADER motor. (Low Emission ADvanced Engine Rang)

It has a Dell'Orto CV carburetor With a SOHC Cylinder head.It evenly picks up speed, but has a flat spot just after the centrifugal clutch lets go completely. There is a bit of a vibration on the motor, but otherwise it runs very quiet.

The ET4 is stable under braking and when it is ridden hard, but the suspension is a bit soft. The

Piaggio has good handeling and brakes to match.
The styling is slightly curved and the instrument panel has the basic Speedo, fuel gauge and warning lamps, but boasts a sporty digital clock which is a rarity on scooters.

The Piaggio ET4, a sporty scooter with a classical look and only the essentials on board.

Vespa Granturismo 200L

The new generation of Vespa is here, the Granturismo 200L.

The two stroke engine with minimal moving parts isreplaced with a cleaner 198cc, four valve motor with a CV carburettor.

The new motor is a bit slow when it is cold,but let it idle for a while and you are ready to go.
The chassis hasn’t changed much, but the brakes are up to date. It has a 220mm disc on both sides in front and as usual the rear brake is stronger than the front. You can expect to come to a stand still quicker than expected. It is also astonishingly stable when braking.

The cubby-hole is opened by pressing the ignition switch and when opened you’ll find that it is completely carpeted, which means that there will be no more scuff marks on your cell phone. The under-seat storage is a bit small for a full-face helmet, but spacious enough for everyday groceries. It has no lock, but is opened with a button located on the inside of the leg shield.Both storage compartments are locked when you lock the steering.

The Vespa Granturismo 200L is commuting at its best.
